A new star is born!

Well I finally decided to go ahead and make a damn blog. Basically I've been toying with the idea for a few months and finally decided to give it a shot. The biggest obstacle I've had was the fact that I have a very short attention span, and I was wondering if I was going to update this regularly for longer than my average project lasts (about a few weeks ;)). But really, I spend so much time commenting the stories on other blogs that I might as well keep some of my material for myself.

This blog will be mostly me ranting off on anarchism-related subjects. In both of Canada's official language. I haven't found a lot of interesting, left-wing French blogs. One of them is Voix de Fait, which is the organ of the North-Eastern Federation of Anarcho-Communists, an organisation that I support and of which I am an ex-member. So part of my interest in starting this is to provide a far Left analysis of world and local (Quebec) events, in French for my compatriots and in English for foreign comrades.

Subjects I usually spout on would be class struggle, feminism, ecology, racism, as well as critiques of Libertarianism, conservativism, but also of state socialism and liberalism from an anarchist perspective.

Note that this is Anarcho RANTS, not Anarchism 101. While I will sometimes explain key anarchist concepts as they relate to some issue, I will mostly be using this as a soapbox to let off some steam, as well as a platform to ridicule the pompous asses of the Right. I'm doing this to entertain myself, and others, not as much to educate (though sometimes I will take an opportunity to do so).

I refer anyone who does need Anarchism 101 to an Anarchist FAQ.

Updated: The Voix de Fait blog is not the organ of the NEFAC, but is maintained by the NEFAC Quebec City collective. It does not represent the official voice of the federation as a whole, or even that of this particular collective as a whole.

While I cannot say that we are in agreement on many issues, except anti-racism, I'm looking forward to see your take on things. I don't agree with quite a few of your comments over at Orcinus, but they often make me think, and that's always good.

Congratulation for your blog. Look like it will be an interesting read.

Just a precision, Voix de faits is not the organ of the whole federation but only the blog of one of the Quebec groups.

(Actually, as a side note, while NEFAC do edit newspapers and magazines, we reject the idea of an 'organ' or 'official voice')
